To realize truth beyond any concept is letting go of all clinging and attachment, letting go of all religious concepts. From the ego’s perspective the finger pointing you to Samadhi is pointing straight toward the abyss. Saint John of the Cross said “If one wishes to be sure of the road they tread, one must close their eyes and walk in the dark.”

Once back in the hut, we tried again to figure out what was going on. I felt Dennis’s amazement was perfectly reasonable; it was my own encounter with the visionary and linguistic powers of DMT that had originally sent me looking into hallucinogens and their place in nature. It is incredible to see all that you believe about reality changed around by these plant metabolites. Excitement is a reasonable reaction to such an edifying, even terrifying, experience.


Quote is from Terence McKenna – True Hallucinations

“Thinking is thinging.”
When you stop thinging, when you’ve finished with dividing all that you see, as subject, into named objects— self-thought-mind-concepts-reality-emptiness-void—all are recognized as one, insubstantial no-thing.
Then, even goodbye to considerations as to what is ‘dual’ and what is ‘nondual.’
That’s the ending of thought, of the “known.”

When the self has died, “everything” dies with it: “Thus [awakening] is called,” notes Wilber, “Void, Sunyata [featureless], Empty, Agnoia [Unknown]; which means only that all thoughts and propositions about reality are void and invalid [to Reality itself].” Nothing left to think about; no one left to think about it.

Prior to awakening, we read about or hear about some particular discipline or disciplines, and may engage in such a “practice.” Once realization is present clearly, we come to comprehend that the real “practice” the teachers are emphasizing actually has to do with how we live our life, not some superficial system or methodology. – Robert Wolfe

Its resolution is in what Krishnamurti (and others) described as choiceless awareness. This is not a matter of ignoring, discounting, or attempting to reject whatever is present. It is a matter of suspending hopes, ideas, and beliefs or preferences for whatever is present to be anything other than what it is – Robert Wolfe

Quote is from the book: Robert Wolfe – Abiding in Nondual Awareness: exploring the further implications of living nonduality

Sagacious teachers speak to the listener (at least at the outset) on the listener’s level of understanding, not necessarily representing the teacher’s level of understanding. To those who (at least at the outset) envision only that which is relative, they speak in relative terms. To those who recognize the Absolute, they speak from the standpoint of the Absolute. To those in transition, they may make alternate references, as a means of comparative illustration – Robert Wolfe

When clarity is present, no book, bible or text need be relied upon for guidance. The source of all cosmic wisdom is as available to you as directly as it has been for anyone else in recognition of it. The teachings of Buddha, Jesus, Krishnamurti et al were not intended to produce Buddhists, Christians, “followers” etc. They were intended to provoke direct experience of transcendental consciousness—nothing less – Robert Wolfe

The dissolution of such conflict comes in recognizing the truth which nonduality suggests. The I-thought can disassemble into the source of its Being. Then the outcome of any choice, being made by this particular manifestation of the Source of all activity (this “person”), is seen to ultimately make no difference. “Clinging” to (the importance of) choices, ceases. One observes the choices that are being made, and their outcome, without concern, without feelings of conflict.
This is what is called “choiceless awareness.” – Robert Wolfe

Ramana’s teachings actually went further than Advaita; they reflected the most refined form of Advaita, which is called Ajata. Basically, Advaita emphasizes that “All is One”; Ajata erases both the “All” and the “One” as definitional concepts. Any thoughts of “existence” are dependent upon sensate consciousness; the dead are devoid of both the ideational entities of the Self or of the self. So, the teachings of Ramana reflect the “emptiness” or “void” of reality, which renders all analytical philosophies moot – Robert Wolfe

Quote is from the book: Robert Wolfe – Abiding in Nondual Awareness: exploring the further implications of living nonduality

Ask not what you can get; ask what you can give. The lives of the enlightened masters tell us that when your wants and your needs are not two, you are likely to lead a non-competitive life, involving a freedom out of which emerges a fearless creativity; this becomes, without intention, a life of “service.” And, like water reaching its own level, such service tends to be supported without even the need to ask – Robert Wolfe

Quote is from the book: Robert Wolfe – Abiding in Nondual Awareness: exploring the further implications of living nonduality

One throws a rock into the water and the water makes ripples which lap the farther shore.
The human who throws the rock; the rock itself; the water; and the far shore—all these are equivalent manifestations of the same actuality of wholeness. The rock, the water, the distant bank are as much a cause, in the event, as is the human. Actor, action, acted upon—all inseparable elements in the manifest expression of wholeness – Robert Wolfe

Quote is from the book: Robert Wolfe – Abiding in Nondual Awareness: exploring the further implications of living nonduality

The central point of nonduality is that there is only one recognition that you need to be continually conscious of, and that will be the key to all that you need to know. It is this: all that is (everything, whether we say it is existent or non-existent), is the one single, indivisible actuality. Any thing which is formed, formless, named or unnamable is, in the final analysis, that illimitable actuality in essence – Robert Wolfe
